MIAMI (AP) -Los Angeles Dodgers utilityman Marlon Anderson will undergo arthroscopic elbow surgery Friday and is expected to be sidelined at least two months.
Anderson, a backup infielder and outfielder, went on the disabled list last week. He experienced lingering problems following offseason surgery, and an MRI exam Monday in Los Angeles revealed bone chips and scar tissue.
Anderson was hitting .222 in 18 at-bats.
``He was trying to operate not totally sound, and that's not good,'' manager Grady Little said Tuesday.
